OK, so I have a small obsession with the Broccoli Bacon Raisin Salad that Sprouts sells. Small obsession meaning I buy a container of it EVERY week and eat it for lunch. I LOVE it! Since I love it so much I decided that I would try to make it. I searched and searched for a recipe that seemed to be the "right" one...there are a ton of them out there and I desperately wanted mine to taste like the one I buy each week. I finally picked this one from allrecipes.com and it is pretty darn close. I just might have given Sprouts a run for its money!
Broccoli Bacon Raisin Salad
1 bunch broccoli, washed, drained, and broken into flowerets
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 pound bacon, fried, drained and crumbled (I did about half that)
1/2 cup hulled sunflower seeds
1/2 cup raisins (I don't care for raisins, so I left these out)
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. vinegar
Combine salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl and set aside. Combine dressing ingredients together thoroughly.
